Croff Watch
 
Hi all. I found this watch on ebay but can't find any information about it on the web. There is nothing remarkable about the watch except that 'Croff' is my last name. If anyone has heard of this company or can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. Thanks!

I know NOTHING about the company.
VERY little info on the web

All I could find was

http://www.chealwatch.com/

They list it as a brand they service so perhaps send them an Email.

Good luck!
Let us know what you discover.

Thank you Jeremy.:cheers: I have sent them an email. Hopefully they will respond.

Well, Cheal Watches emailed me back but they don't know anything about Croff Watches as a company. All they can do is service them.

Back to the drawing board....

It looks like a watch from the 50's.

Well if they didn't have any info I hate to say it but its gonna be tough to
get anything at all... Usually if someone services something you think they
would know a little about it.

I looked and looked.
Can't find anything...

Musta been a really small company or some store that just had
their name put on the dial of someone elses watch.
Do you have any pics of the inside?

That's kind of what I was thinking.

No. The picture and information came off of an Ebay listing. The item location is in the UK. I suppose I could ask the seller for more info. I just figured I'd try this all knowing watch forum first.:cheers:

While I am not into vintage dress watches
IF it had my name on it I think Id buy it
unless its price is crazy....

That is just cool!

The price is reasonable, $65, but I don't know how often my Sub will be off my wrist. Oh well, I'll probably just buy it.:cheers:

65 bucks buy it....
Its a cool piece to have just to look at
and you can put it on when seeing family
for a laugh....

I am sure you have wasted more than $65 this
past week on silly things (add up all the little things and you
will be surprised)
